Laws: Thursday, June 2nd, 2016

Listen to the homily here.

Oops...I should have said 613 laws in Leviticus!


How many laws are in the Old Testament?

A Scribe (many against Jesus) asked a question to Jesus: “Which is the first of all the commandments?”

The first is this: Hear, O Israel!  The Lord our God is Lord alone!  You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.  The second is this:  You shall love your neighbor as yourself.  There is no other commandment greater than these.”

“is worth more than all burnt offerings and sacrifices…”

Big answer

And when Jesus saw that he answered with understanding, he said to him, “You are not far from the Kingdom of God
